Frontier, the ultra low-cost carrier that recently tried to merge with Spirit Airlines (but got rejected and replaced by JetBlue) has started new service to Las Vegas from Baltimore, Buffalo, Hartford, and Kansas City. The new services started on August 9 and will connect customers to one of Frontier’s busiest hubs and destinations.
Why Las Vegas?
Las Vegas (LAS) is a hub from Frontier Airlines, and while Frontier doesn’t have quite the hub-and-spoke model of legacy airlines, there’s plenty of traffic flowing in and out of Sin City. Las Vegas is a great destination for a low-cost carrier to serve — there’s tremendous popularity, and the fares tend to be extraordinarily cheap.
Frontier will be adding nonstop service from Las Vegas (LAS) to Baltimore (BWI), Buffalo (BUF), Hartford (BDL), and Kansas City (MCI). Each service will operate once daily, and here are the flight times:
- Depart Baltimore (BWI) 8:00 p.m. — Arrive Las Vegas (LAS) 10:03 p.m.
- Depart Las Vegas (LAS) 10:49 p.m. — Arrive Baltimore (BWI) 6:25 a.m.
- Depart Buffalo (BUF) 5:49 p.m. — Arrive Las Vegas (LAS) 7:30 p.m.
- Depart Las Vegas (LAS) 9:41 p.m. — Arrive Buffalo (BUF) 4:55 a.m.
- Depart Hartford (BDL) 5:29 p.m. — Arrive Las Vegas (LAS) 8:05 p.m.
- Depart Las Vegas (LAS) 9:06 p.m. — Arrive Hartford (BDL) 5:03 a.m.
- Depart Kansas City (MCI) 8:12 p.m. — Arrive Las Vegas (LAS) 9:15 p.m.
- Depart Las Vegas (LAS) 7:38 a.m. — Arrive Kansas City (MCI) 12:25 p.m.
Introductory fares on each route start at $69, though there are some restrictions:
- Fares are valid for nonstop travel only (no connecting flights).
- There’s a 7-day advanced purchase required, and you must purchase by August 15.
- You can only travel Monday through Saturday, through November 2 (no Sunday travel).
- There are some blackout dates to be aware of, though these tend to be on major holidays.
Hot Tip: The introductory fares only last for a few days, so if you’re interested in flying on the cheap, you’ll want to book sooner rather than later.
It’s worth noting that Frontier is an ultra-low-cost airline, and nearly all ticket purchases require extra ancillaries, such as seat assignments, checked bag fees, etc. While you may find Frontier fares cheaper than other airlines, you’ll want to ensure you compare the costs before purchasing as often Frontier, once you add in all the extras, might in fact be more expensive than rival airlines.
For those who want to head to Las Vegas from Baltimore, Buffalo, Hartford, and Kansas City, you’re in luck with the new Frontier service. When Frontier adds a new route, it often drives down the price of other airlines as well, so consider these new routes a win, even if you don’t intend on flying Frontier.
